Cognos' approach to Analyze-then-Query provides a rich, intuitive user experience and optimum enterprise performance. Moving through summary-level data, PowerPlay allows Web or client/server users to move to supporting transactional-level data as required. Cognos Impromptu products can be automatically invoked to submit qualified, managed queries. Dimensions from the current OLAP view of data are passed automatically as filter information to Impromptu. This eliminates unnecessary and large queries that can strain computing infrastructures.
